Reading “Local Girl Swept Away” – in GIFs

I absolutely loved this novel! The plot was well thought out, the ending was unpredictable, the characters felt so real and it was more than easy to empathize with them and understand the decisions they made. After reading the novel, I had to share my excitement and love for it through some method. Below is exactly how I felt when reading Ellen Wittlinger’s novel “Local Girl Swept Away”:

When the book begins and I meet the characters for the first time

Ahh Childhood

Watching the trio go through the tragedy of losing a friend


When Jackie tries to “console” Finn

can't look

When the truth is revealed

I knew it

After Jackie gets her well-deserved big break


When I finished reading the book

awww, books

All in all, this novel is the perfect summer read. It’s the kind of book you can sit on the patio and sink your teeth into. I’m officially a fan of Ellen Wittlinger and can’t wait to read her other books.

Leigh-Ann Brodber is an upcoming enthusiastic journalist. She knows it is a field that is already heavily flooded by diverse opinions, hard criticism and occasional appraisal (when it’s due), but she’s sure she’ll be able to add her own colors to the journalism rainbow soon enough. Leigh-Ann currently attends COSTAATT, a college located in the Caribbean, where she’s pursuing her Bachelors in Mass Communication. She’s written film, stage production and food articles for various websites, and she’s also a born and bred animal rights activist, although she doesn’t think she’ll ever give up her rights to eat chicken. She has helped out at her local hospital many-a-time by indulging in weekly chit-chat with patients under a program called Candy Stripers. She recently started getting help for her long term Facebook addiction, she swears.
